Version 1.3 What's new

Bibliovore version 1.3 implements the following improvements:

Access to OPDS catalogs


The Open Publication Distribution System (OPDS) Catalog format is a syndication format for electronic publications based on Atom and HTTP. OPDS Catalogs enable the aggregation, distribution, discovery, and acquisition of electronic publications. OPDS Catalogs use existing or emergent open standards and conventions, with a priority on simplicity. (Wikipedia definition )
Bibliovore is now able to browse such libraries. Two famous librairies have been enabled:

Users can browse the content of online library but also make search requests from within the application. Books are downloaded and indexed in the application allowing to read books offline.

Generic covers


Sometimes epub files have no cover. In such case, Bibliovore now generates a generic cover so that all books have a cover, thus unifying the UI and the user experience.
